Agile Leadership Event

Agile Leadership Event

A Senior IT Leadership Forum

A Morning Event Crafted Exclusively for Agile Executives

Not an Executive? Attend our Agile Manage Workshops: Agile in Practice: Empowering Agile Teams

Agile adoption is very reliant on the technical competence of the teams and how they work together; however the support of an engaged, lead-by-example executive team is critical for success at enterprise-scale. Join this interactive two-hour session and discuss, debate and learn alongside other executives how you can begin delivering faster results whilst improving delivery quality.

SimCorp, an investment management solution provider that manages over $19 trillion in assets couldn’t afford to second-guess their decisions when they decided to transform their organisation from a heavily-governed waterfall process to Agile. One of the key enablers to their agile transformation was that senior management was extremely favourable of driving the change. They believed in the process and believed that increased productivity would result from their agile transformation.

Join us with special guest Georg Hedrot, Chief Technology Officer at SimCorp, Chris Bezuidenhout, Director, Strategic P&L at Deutsche Bank along with Ian Spence, Chief Scientist at Ivar Jacobson International and Brian Kerr, Principal Consultant as the group discusses:

  • Sustaining a High Performance Organisation, Moving Fast and at Scale
  • Empowering Teams as a Servant Leader
  • The Quest to Build High Functioning Teams
  • Creating a Resilient Organisation

This event has very limited capacity and is for senior level executives.
